The Soup:


Soups are one of the best ways to break the fast at Iftar, they are warm and gentle on the stomach given the body loads of vitamins minerals and fluids which are easy to digest, and this is a very traditional recipe for the gulf with a little twist, making it more modern. We have used Knorr Shawarma Seasoning because of its citrus and spice notes.

    • Crack open the crabs and separate the meat from the shells, discard the gills and digestive system found on the underside of the crab.
  2. The Soup:
